Not-So-Simple Cinder Cone Plumbing Systems: Examples From the Sierra Nevada - Brandon Browne, Department of Geological Sciences, California State University Fullerton: Cinder cones situated in continental monogenetic volcanic fields are generally thought to erupt single magma batches over short periods of time. However, field mapping efforts combined with petrologic, geochemical, and thermobarometric analysis of erupted products from two unrelated volcanic fields in California (Red Cones, 5...

The Cretaceous-Paleogene ("KT") Boundary In Belize and Alabama - David T. King, Jr., Department of Geology and Geography, Auburn University, Alabama: Belize - At Albion Island in northern Belize, Cretaceous-Paleogene (KT) boundary deposits, also known as the Albion formation, rest upon karsted and fractured Maastrichtian dolostones. These deposits consist of a basal impactoclastic clay layer (~ 1 to 2-m thick) and an upper carbonate-rich, coarse impactoclastic breccia layer (up to 15-m...

submitted by: LTER_NetworkOffice_is

You want to create a metadata record that describes your Ecological Data set. You want this metadata document to be standardized for easy sharing - and you thought that you would use the Ecological Metadata Language (EML). One way to create EML records is using Morpho. Morphos is free, download it from the "ecoinformatics.org" site and use this video-tutorial to see how you can use Morpho.

SDSU Geological Sciences Webinar - Greg Hirth

submitted by: tcarrasc
Understanding earthquakes at the microscopic scale: Greg Hirth, Geology & Gephysics, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution - I will first review of how to relate rock strength determined from lab experiments to geological and geophysical observations - emphasizing apparent paradoxes and successes. I will then introduce why understanding earthquake mechanisms in the oceanic lithosphere can provide new insights into the rheological properties of fault zones, and present an experimental...
